Virginia is in the process of building a VHF high-band digital trunking radio system known as STARS (Statewide Agencies Radio System). The system is being used by the Virginia State Police in wide swaths of the state as well as by Corrections, Fish & Game, Emergency Management and others. However the older State Police system is still being used in some areas. This is a conventional high-band radio system. A digital scanner is the best choice for Virginia state agencies as it will work on
the new and the older legacy systems.
